Abstract

The majority of hadith specialists deem that hadith studies have not reached its end point, in which everyone would agree, and the study itself is still in continuous renewal. In this case, a sufi, on the one side is on the path of purgation in the spirit of ma‘rifatullah (the state of knowing Allah) by following the prophet’s way of life, doing it by following the hadith. And on the other side, a Sufi is seen by the hadith specialists (also by many Muslims in general) as someone who is following the prophet’s way of life by too easily quoting the hadiths, even the hadiths which according to the specialists are un-authentic. Here lies the contrast between the sufis and the hadith specialists, while in fact the sufis have tested the authenticity of the hadith through other methods. This discussion will focus on Al-Ghazali’s method on reviewing the authenticity of a hadith, the method then can perhaps be used to determine other sufis’ method in general
